Lawmaker Asks JAMB To Review Cut-off Mark For Universities

The senator said to address the falling standard of education in the country, the curriculum and quality of teachers should be improved as well.

She made the suggestion during the monitoring exercise of the 2022 National Personnel Audit, being carried out by the Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC) in Abuja, saying the educational sector “needs more funding.”

She said: “We have called out for that in the chambers. When we miss it at this level, the country will have issues to face.

With the cut-off marks approved by JAMB, candidates who couldn’t make it into universities and polytechnics will be sent to the colleges of education.

“This should not be so. Only the best are needed in the teaching profession.

We have maintained that education is not to be left to the government alone even though it is the responsibility of the government to ensure that the public schools are properly maintained.”

She said parents and wealthy Nigerians should support the government to improve the falling standard of education.

Eyakenyi, who also raised concern on the growing numbers of out-of-school children, said due to insecurity in the federation, children would not go to school. the statement reads in part.
